When is Lailat al Barat (Mid-Sha'ban)?

Lailat al Barat means Night of Salvation. It is celebrated on the 15th day of Sha'baan.

On this day, the Sunni's remember how God saved Moses' followers from the flood. They also believe that on this day Allah determines everyone's fate for the next year, including whether they live or die.

The Shia's believe that Muhammad al-Mahdi was born on this day. As the final Imam (one who is infallible, without sin) he is said to be the one who will bring world peace. He is said to be currently hidden from the world and will return one day with Jesus to bring world peace and justice.
